Lane Johnson will have served as the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting right tackle for the entire 2022 season. Jalen Hurts, the team’s current quarterback, has shown promise in 19 starts since displacing Carson Wentz in 2020, but he is still improving as a thrower. Johnson believes that Hurts is addressing that growth in a way that is admirable.
“He simply exudes elegance in whatever he does. He wants respect, after all” said Johnson. “Just the way he goes about his daily activities, his training, and what he does. He’s also a terrific motivator. He is a wonderful leader and constantly works in the background, interacting with many of the boys even over the summer. just carrying the routine preparations. I’m sure he’s looking forward to getting to work and is also enthusiastic about the new players we’ve recruited and added throughout the summer.” When the 2022 season begins, we’ll see if the Hurts live up to all of these expectations.
